Cult Australian improvisation icons – post jazz; beyond definition.
“The greatest trio on Earth” is how the New York Times described The Necks – Australia’s improvisational conjurors. You could say The Necks play jazz but just like that big swing from the NYT that description would be too simple. Typically performing two extended and improvised pieces their modal jazz prises open tectonic plates and unknown realms before elevating the audience to a higher ground.
As RISING’s band In Residency The Necks perform across multiple venues and formats—their only shows in the world in over a year. As a unit they send piano drums percussion and bass strings swirling around the Comedy Theatre; and provide an escalating dramatic live score to Back to Back Theatre’s restaging of its seminal work Food Court. And in solo performances band members Chris Abrahams and Tony Buck play the Melbourne Recital Centre.
Post-genre never still always changing The Necks are a world unto themselves.
